Case story

The Lensbury Hotel

Location: Teddington, UK

Product: XtraGrass

Date: Spring 2017

Project Description:

The Lensbury, a unique 4 star hotel located in Teddington just a few minutes from Twickenham Stadium is well known for hosting elite international rugby teams for their training requirements and with just one pitch in situ the hotel decided to extend their facilities with the addition of a GreenFields XtraGrass hybrid pitch. The 7820m² highly durable rugby pitch was constructed initially by preparing the ground which included the importation and cultivation of a specialised rootzone. The XtraGrass rolls were then laid and machine stitched on site. The next step was the addition of a rootzone infill and drilling of grass seed ensuring efficient growth through the recyclable XtraGrass backing achieved through utilising specialist fertilisers with help from nature itself. As part of the GreenFields overall construction package a state of the art integral computer controlled pop up irrigation system was installed. On completion of the XtraGrass pitch, The Lensbury identified the need for a professional company to maintain both of their sports pitches on a day to day basis, and they selected the experienced GreenFields Grounds Team due to their enhanced knowledge of both natural and hybrid surfaces.
